Cheshire, CT - At approximately 10:50 A.M. on December 23, 2020, the CFD was dispatched for a house fire. On arrival of first units there was fire showing from the front door extending from the basement and working its way to the first floor of the house.
Two hand lines were stretched to extinguish the fire while simultaneously searching for any residents inside. The fire was brought under control quickly and the searches were negative. All the residents made it out safely.
Three Cheshire engines and one ladder were on scene, along with one engine and one ladder truck from Southington. There were no reported injuries. The fire is under investigation by the Cheshire FMO.
